Stop pretending

Stop Pretending

Stop pretending like you don’t have ambitions for the next level of leadership, impact and income just because you don’t think you can have it

One of the 48 laws of power as authored by Robert Greene is ‘Disdain the things you cannot have’. He explains that if there’s something you but cannot have, show contempt for it.

A coaching client reflected that having a dream is nice when it is still just a fantasy that you entertain in your mind. It’s only when you commit by taking action, which might just be setting a deadline and taking the steps to achieve it, that the honeymoon is over. Everything becomes real, difficult and uncomfortable.

This might be the reason why you might not have yet achieved the next level of leadership, impact and income. The fear of admitting that you want it and committing to making it happen.

Because when you do, you have to now deal with the fear of failure, your inadequacies and the uncomfortable state of expansion that you need to put yourself through.

So what some people do is to act like they don’t want it. They act like they despise ambition, that money and power is not attractive to them. They may dislike, criticise and mistreat those who own their power and ambition. This may pacify them but it still won’t get them what they really want
